Hello! Want to try out new recipes and cook together with other people in SE++?
Because my friends group is not at all interested in the culinary arts, and a lot of people on these forums are (or want to be), I figured this would be a great place to run a cookbook/recipe club. We don't get to sample each others' cooking, but since we'll all make the same (or similar) dish, it'll be like
we're eating together!
The process is as follows:
a) We choose a dish to make
b) Discuss alterations/substitutions
c) Make the recipe, discussing thoughts about the dish, posting pics, rating the recipe(s), etc.
I figured we can do this on a weekly basis. It won't be super formal or require signups. We can coordinate for cooking/posting on a particular evening (Saturday?) but if you make it earlier or later than that particular day, that's more than fine too. 30th COOKALONG
Omurice, or omelette rice, is an example of yōshoku, western-influenced Japanese cuisine. It consists of an omelette over fried rice, usually with ketchup mixed in, and ketchup drizzled on top. It is particularly popular with kids, and a childhood staple. The dish has spread to Korea and Taiwan (the former of which devised the tornado omurice trend), and even further given the international popularity of Japanese media
